I started out my afternoon hitting the gym for some strength training and a little cardio as I do each Tuesday. After getting home and showering I just couldn't resist going for a walk. The weather was perfect, a sunny 70 degrees with a slight breeze. I wasn't feeling up to walking the usual route so I decided that we would just hit the Clinton River Trail for a bit and turn around and come back.

Diesel and I stopped and visited for a while. He got another drink of water and we headed on back out towards home. I wanted to see just how long of a walk it would be taking the main roads so I headed on out of the neighborhood and onto Auburn Rd. Standing at the top of the hill I could see I had another large hill in front of us that would need to be tackled before we'd see the edge of our own neighborhood. There was no turning back now.
Today I would look up our walking route on Google's Pedometer page and discover we walked nearly 4 miles. Our usual walk is just under 3. That, along with the lunges, and ball squats would explain why my thighs were sore today. But it was still a nice walk and good knowing I can get to Mom's house from the trail.
